The Peninsula On-line:

My op-ed on the jihadist father gag order was rerun in "The Peninsula On-line." Question (no fair googling): Which peninsula? Hint below.

My guess is the one in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Elliot: Either you didn't read the hint, or you're making a pretty subtle joke.

I'd guess Malaysia.

I used to live there (for business), so maybe this isn't fair, but I think you're referring to Qatar.

FC won it. The verbiage of the hint would lend one to think that it referred to Singapore or Malaysia at first glance, but (to bring in Princess Bride analysis) it obviously wouldn't be Malaysia since they don't think of themselves as a peninsula (it's only 1/2 of the country, and it is the most English part of the country so they'd refer to themselves as "Malaysia's leading English...") and it wouldn't be Singapore as it's an English speaking country and overcoming the Straits Times would be a heroic accomplishment. Outside of the military (mostly Air Froce) and some well traveled business people, it's an impenetrable question.

Hey: Yup, I'd be surprised if someone deduced the answer; but I think it's possible. One has to gather that the peninsula is Islamic, and that its main language is not English; that yields relatively few options.

dearieme:
Is it constitutional to have an Air Froce?
